What do you mean by two thumb slider? Haven't heard of the term before.

We have a slider with two thumbs, through which the minimum or maximum value could be adjusted. Natively on iOS slider is adjusted with single finger up / down flick and on android, by volume keys, but that’s the case with single thumb sliders, and it does not seem to work in this situation.

I am looking for some thoughts around the best practices to make it accessible with screenreader on mobile.
